Winning debut at Salisbury in July and posted a useful effort when 1½ lengths third to Saint Lawrence in listed race at Newbury (7f, good to soft) next time. Sets high standard with sights lowered.

10/3

Half-brother to useful winner up to 1¼m Mainstream. Dam, 7f winner (including at 2 yrs), sister to smart 2-y-o 7f winner Flight of Fancy. Well-bred newcomer from top yard.

Didn't achieve that much when well-held third on Haydock debut and comfortably held at Sandown since. Still early days but improvement will be required.

50/1

50,000 gns Dark Angel half-brother to 3 winners, including useful 1m winner Pageant Material and 1m/9f winner Repatriated Gem, both in US. Some paper appeal but watching brief the percentage call.

Betting

Forecast

Francesco Guardi (4/11), Chalk Stream (10/3), Forest Falcon (10/1), Graystone (50/1)

Verdict

FRANCESCO GUARDI sets a high standard for a race like this on his latest Newbury third so well-bred William Haggas newcomer Chalk Stream will need to be very useful to lower his colours.

  1. FRANCESCO GUARDI (IRE)
  2. CHALK STREAM
  3. FOREST FALCON (IRE)
